The overall use of the near fullsize keyboard, that is only 5mm thick we may add, is smooth and swift. The keyboard is very easy to set up and is an extremely useful addition to your iPad Air.

The battery life was super, as we achieved nearly a week of constant usage without even thinking about giving it a charge. Typo reports that due to it’s high-capacity battery it will last up to a year on a single charge, which may take some time to test. In the meantime, you have three indicator lights found at the top right of the keyboard that light up to let you know when the keyboard is powered on.

It also has an included smart Typo Auto-Correct, which reintroduces typing shortcuts that were previously unavailable on bluetooth keyboards. We found this to be convenient, but it is not going to make or break the keyboard. Typing on this keyboard was the only way for us to truly say we were impressed, which we found to be comfortable and natural. The keyboard shortcuts quickly let you navigate through your iPad with ease.

Overall we are very impressed with the latest product from Typo. Its attempt is to bridge the gap between the iPad and laptops, and it does just that! Listed at $149 on the Typo website and on Amazon, you really do get what you pay for. It is priced a little higher than what you would normally see other bluetooth keyboards at, but those keyboards will not stack up to the quality of this keybaord. Actually, we would even venture to say that you will probably end up purchasing a new iPad Air before even considering to replace this keyboard. This is a solid iPad accessory that we recommend to anyone who already uses a bluetooth keyboard, and to those who may just be considering the option. Typo and their latest product are well deserving of our Gold Seal of Approval!
